OH, CANADA!

Some of the best players in Utah women’s basketball history have come from north of the border.

Fourteen Canadian-born student-athletes have played for the Utes since 1997-98, with at least one on the squad each year and at least two playing together since 2009-10.

Kim Smith, Shona Thorburn and Michelle Plouffe played for the Canadian National Team during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Canada advanced to the quarterfinals before falling to Team USA. Smith averaged 13.8 points per game, while Thorburn averaged 10.5 points and 4.5 rebounds during the tournament. Plouffe played in two games.
